We perceive very, very little due to our narrow scope of conscious perception, a mere fraction of what is available for perception, perception that is available in altered states of consciousness for example. So much escapes us.
We simply do not perceive the ever-present God Energy Force Field that pervades all existence, but that does not mean that God does not exist, for God is All That Is.
From: ESP Class Session: Tuesday, June 23, 1970
“Now: If you want organization then you shall have it – at any time. You structure your own existence, and you choose those realities that have exactly as much organization as you need at any given time.”
“In this reality, you very nicely emphasize all the similarities which bind you together; you make a pattern of them, and you very nicely ignore all the dissimilarities. Out of a vast field of perception, you choose to focus your attention upon certain specific areas and to ignore all others, and so there is perfect agreement among you as far as this small area is concerned. The vastness that you do not perceive does not bother you at all, and you do not ask questions about it. And yet it exists.”
“I have said this before: If you were able to focus your attention upon the dissimilarities, merely those that you can perceive but do not, then you would be amazed that mankind can form any idea of an organized reality. I look now between the two of you. When the others look at our friend here on the fancy blue couch, they see a picture of true organization. There is an individual there, and an individual there, with space between. The picture is equalized. It appears perfect and organized.”
“However, the space between our two friends is not vacant. You think of it as vacant because you do not perceive what is there. The picture appears to be very organized. As soon as you realized that the picture is not complete, however, then you must begin to ask new questions, and the old idea of the perfect organization is gone.”
“Now: As you know, you do not perceive the atoms and molecules that swim about the room, nor those that fill the space between our two friends, nor the forces – the field forces – that exist. The couch serves to unite them since they sit upon it. And what do they sit upon? Emptiness that you perceive as solidity.”
“Now without your particular physical senses you would not perceive the couch as solid. Consciousness that has different perceptive mechanisms than your own is unaware of our now famous blue couch. You make the organization. Your thoughts perceive an organization. You enforce the organization, and indeed create it.”
